    I only had about 10 people at my shower – most of my family didnt bother coming, including to the wedding. I was hurt at first because none of them congratulated me through a phone call or a card. It was weird since I was there for all their showers, but then I just figured – the people that want to be there are there. Besides – I personally hate people watching me open presents – I feel so awkward. The less people there the more intimate it was and we could spend more time just talking, but thats just me lol.

    I can see how that would be upsetting or disappointing.  It’s unfortunate because it’s so hard to pin people down during the summertime because of vacation plans, and unfortunately, it’s your special event that is suffering from it.  Just tell yourself that they’re not skipping it because of you, and they all probably want to be there, but it’s just a bad time of year.

    I think 11 people will be a perfect number! Yes, it’s sad that everyone you want to be there can’t, but 40 people is a lot for a shower. You’re really going to be able to talk to everyone that is there and I’m sure it’ll be a lovely time.

    Some people also just aren’t shower goers…I’ll only go to one for a close friend. I love to be there to celebrate their wedding, but I don’t get super excited about most bridal showers.

    I don’t know exactly how many people will be at mine, because my aunt did the inviting, but it’s definitely less than 20 and probably more like 10-12.

    I had 16, including my FI and I (co-ed shower). If I was only inviting girls, it would have been around 7!

    We had a great time eating brunch and drinking mimosas, and didn’t play any of the typical games. The boys occasionally snuck over to the TV to watch the World Cup game that was on. I loved it!

    I had 20 and that was from a rather large list.  But it was actually very nice and quaint.
